12. Reverse gear makes cone-dodging interesting
There was an autocross-type course set up to demonstrate tight, confined driving techniques in the XFR. But to mix it up and add an element of villainy, we were instructed to pull into a coned-off parking space, reverse for 50 yards while making a slight turn, back all the way up to a set of cones and then set off forward again on the rest of the course as quickly as we could. It was a fun exercise, but whenever you're at a race track and you're setting lap times in a parking lot course ... you wish you were on the real race track.
15. Jaguar seems content to continue letting the German luxury car establishment be pretty boring
I guess that was their evil master plan all along.
